Major Atom Girls finish 4th at Stacey Dales Invitational

The Major Atom girls hosted their tournament on January 27-28 in Brockville.  They had some close games and played some of their best basketball of the year.

In their first game they fell 45-41 to Ottawa Next Level.  Game 2 on Saturday had them up against a hot shooting Kingston Impact team.  The game was much closer than the 45-25 final score.

Sunday morning, they faced Ottawa South Bedrock who had beat the Blazers a few weeks earlier.  This time the Blazers came out and adjusted but just came up short again 33-26.  This placed them in the Bronze Medal game vs Ottawa Next Level.

In the bronze medal game, the Blazers were up 1 at halftime, but a few calls that didn’t go their way put  the game away as they fell 31-26.

In the gold medal game, Ottawa South avenged a round robin loss to Kingston Impact, by defeating them 33-28 to win gold.

Coach Andrea introduced the girls to some pregame team building exercises and ancient monk-like chants.
The girls seemed to really get into it.
